A touching and heartfelt moment from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix docuseries, “Harry & Meghan,” has risen in popularity on TikTok, capturing the hearts of viewers.
The resurfaced footage shows Prince Harry reflecting on his daughter, Princess Lilibet, and drawing a poignant comparison between her and his late mother, Princess Diana.
Princess Lilibet’s resemblance to Princess Diana
Princess Lilibet Diana, born in June 2021, carries a name that reverberates with historical significance and family ties.
The name “Lilibet” was an affectionate nickname for Queen Elizabeth II, originating from the Queen’s childhood attempts to pronounce her full name.
The addition of “Diana” is a touching tribute to Prince Harry’s beloved mother, Princess Diana, whose untimely passing at age 36 left an indelible mark on his life.
The couple’s move to Montecito, California, accompanied by their eldest son, Prince Archie, marked an important chapter in their lives.
Amid royal rifts and ongoing controversies, the Sussexes embarked on a new journey that allowed them greater control over their public image.
This greater privacy extended to their children, with a single official portrait of Princess Lilibet to commemorate her first birthday in 2022.
The Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan” offered a unique window into the couple’s experiences and emotions.
While the series garnered attention for its revelations and criticisms of the monarchy and the media, it also showed poignant scenes of the couple’s interaction with their children.
The particular clip that resonated on TikTok, shared by user @queendianaspncer, captures a discussion between Harry and Meghan about their youngest daughter’s resemblance to her grandmother and her Spencer lineage.
“I see a lot of my mom in Lili,” She’s very Spencer-like. She’s got the same blue eyes.”
Prince Harry’s remark that he sees traces of his mother in Lilibet, along with her “blue, blue, blue eyes,” has struck a chord with viewers.
The video has been played more than 140 thousand times, has received more than 12,000 likes, and generated hundreds of positive comments.

This connection to Princess Diana, whose family lineage dates back to the 15th century through the Spencer surname, underscores the lasting impact of Diana’s legacy on her son and his growing family.
Interestingly, Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare,” published in January 2023, underscores his enduring connection to Princess Diana’s family.
Harry has proven to have a deep attachment to the Spencer part of his lineage, something that has been a cornerstone of his identity.
